Fuji X-T1 Wifi and automatic photo resizing

I’ve been stymied for a while now transferring files from my Fuji X-T1 wifi to my IPad. Although the files were shot as Large Fine JPegs (4,896 × 3,264) when I imported them to the iPad they were sized as 1776 x 1184.  Most of my street photography workflow avoids the use my MBP.  Camera to iPad, into Snapseed and then onto Flickr or 500px.

While 1776 x 1184 is fine for online work, I really wanted full resolution photos that I could print if need be. I figured the dark and mysterious inner workings of the iPad and it’s benign yet malevolent OS were responsible. Or perhaps the Fuji Cam Remote App.

I emailed my friend David Nightingale, who’s grasp and understanding of technical issues is much greater than mine. He didn’t know. My emails to Fujifilm support went unanswered. As I said, I was stymied.

Then two weeks ago, as I was trying to figure out how to easily change the focus point on the X-T1 (can you not make this easier Fuji?) I was winning through all the set-up menus before heading out for a session on the streets. Low and behold, the last menu, the X-T1 wifi menu, had the selection I was seeking. “Resize image for Smartphone” was enabled.

Eureka! Turning this function off did the trick. My full size JPegs were now being correctly transferred to my iPad. What a glorious day.

If you find yourself struggling with resized photos head into the wifi setup menu on your X-T1. This is fairly niche, I’m certain most people use computers for their pp.

  1. I went through the same thing with my X-E2! Same setup applies to the X-E2. It took me some time to understand what was going on, until I read somewhere that there was this setting.

    By the way, love your blog 🙂

  2. Thank you!! It has taken me weeks to get to the bottom of this. Been using an XT10 for the last couple of months, and dont have a mainframe computer, only an i-pad, so all my images are transferred via wifi. Really noticed the difference on heavily cropped shots. File size has gone from around 1Mb to 12Mb.
